“We were able to talk about survival. How to wake up every day facing a world without our child in it. Not knowing how we could make it through this. We all had these issues, and sharing them and supporting each other helped. Cornerstone’s support groups made this possible.”

- Nancy, Support Group Client -

Once a week, a diverse group of individuals gathered at Cornerstone of Hope in search of an answer for their pain. They came from different walks of life, each carrying their own burdens and sorrows. But what bound them together was a common thread of suffering and a shared need for hope.

As the weeks passed, the support group discovered the power of shared experiences. Among others in the group were Kelly, a woman who lost her son to fentanyl poisoning, Nancy, whose daughter died suddenly from an unknown cause, and Shirley, Kimberly and Patti, each of whom had faced the traumatic loss of their sons in separate car accidents. Their common thread of pain - the loss of an adult child. They sat in a circle sharing their stories, their darkest moments, and their deepest thoughts, all while encouraging and supporting one another.

As the weeks turned into months, the bond between the group members deepened. They celebrated each other’s victories and offered a shoulder to cry on during setbacks. They exchanged phone numbers and formed a group text to stay connected throughout the week. It wasn’t just about the weekly meetings anymore. It was genuine friendships forged in the crucible of their shared struggles.

A group of strangers had become a family. They had transformed from individuals struggling to smile, to get out of bed, to not cry every day; to simply live. They became a source of support and inspiration for one another. Their extraordinary journey was a testament to the power of human connection, empathy, and the belief that together, they would survive.

The support group members credit their new coping skills, their growing compassion, and their ability to move forward in their painful journey to the no-judgment culture experienced at Cornerstone of Hope. Cornerstone, and the people they met there, helped them walk through the darkness into hope.

Above is one of the endless stories of clients who have found hope among the strong friendships and bonds developed among support groups. Grief can be devastating for those we serve. We sincerely ask that you consider a gift to help Cornerstone of Hope continue to create a world where no grieving person journeys alone.
